Limited Edition Luigi 2DS Is A Custom-Made Console, Not An Official Product

Rose Colored Gaming fools everyone, including us

We are so glad we used the "rumour" tag when we posted that story about a Luigi-themed 2DS console the other day. Although the photos looked utterly convincing and we — like most of the internet — were taken in by the green-and-white system, it transpires that it's not an official product, but a...

Nintendo Announces Luigi and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds 3DS XL Models

New Zelda title to have reversible cover, too

While we often bemoan the absence of some particularly snazzy 3DS hardware designs in the West, we today have some happy news to share. The previously Japan-only Luigi 3DS XL model is coming to Europe on 1st November, and a special The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds 3DS XL is also being...

US Retailer Lists Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon For Wii U

Newegg claims the 3DS title is making the jump to Wii U this year

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon — or Luigi's Mansion 2, if you're in Europe — was one of 2013's stand-out 3DS titles. It was so good that some lamented the fact that it was on a handheld — it was exactly the kind of epic experience that the Wii U could really have done with during...

Nintendo Releases "Finding Luigi" Parkour Mockumentary

Luigi, the mythical legend of the streets

Nintendo's marketing often features sizzle reels, those familiar Mario and Luigi costumes with enormous feed and heads, and plenty of quirky moments that try to emphasize silly fun. What the company perhaps could to more of is off-the-wall content with the potential to go viral, which makes its latest...

Luigi Confirmed As Part Of The Smash Bros. Roster On 3DS And Wii U

A foregone conclusion, but nice to know regardless

It has been confirmed during today's Nintendo Direct broadcast that Luigi will be part of the line-up of playable fighters in the next Smash Bros. outing.

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team (3DS)

A never-ending dream

If there was more justice in the world, Mario & Luigi: Dream Team — or Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. as it's known in Europe — would enjoy the same level of hype and anticipation as some of its prestigious predecessors on the 3DS in 2013. And yet, rather like its snoozy subject matter, it drifts into view on a...

Review: New Super Luigi U (Wii U eShop)

New Super Luigi U (Wii U eShop)

New Super DLC for U

So, what is New Super Luigi U? It's not straight-up DLC, nor is it sizable enough to justify a full price retail game, so Nintendo has opted for a best of both worlds approach; it's available as either pricey DLC for New Super Mario Bros. U or as an inexpensive standalone retail game to be released at a later date. What does it...

Luigi Joins the Nintendo Bosses as They Arrive at E3

Jeez, the green one's everywhere right now

Before last year's E3 kicked off Satoru Iwata, Shigeru Miyamoto and Reggie Fils-Aime posed for a picture as they arrived in LA, forming a real-life triforce, perhaps. The three have once again arrived in the city and emerged from a large black people-carrier — is this now becoming a tradition? — but...

Luigi 3DS XL Model Dated and Priced for Japan

We'd like it too, Nintendo

Back during the April Nintendo Direct, the Japanese broadcast showed off the new Luigi 3DS XL model, and it wasn't revealed for other territories. Considering it's a special edition to tie-in with the release of Mario and Luigi: Dream Team, we're running out of time for confirmation that it's coming to the West — E3,...
